The department is delighted to announce two new appointments to our academic staff. Mauro Pasta has joined us from Stanford University as Associate Professor and Tutorial Fellow in St Edmund Hall. His main research area is in electrochemical energy storage. Susannah Speller has been appointed to a Research Lecturership, and her research area is in superconducting materials.
Congratulations to Sergio Lozano-Perez who has been awarded the title of Professor in the recent Recognition of Distinction exercise for his outstanding contributions to research and teaching in the university.
Many congratulations to Dr Lapo Bogani, who has been selected for the Olivier Kahn Laureate Award, having impressed the judges with his multi-doctrinal research. It is a prestigious award which is widely respected in the scientific community. The award will be presented to Lapo during the ECMM2015 meeting in Zaragoza in September.
